Florence Wetzel By

Sign in to view read count Views
A special book about a special institution, Roll With It is meticulously researched and chockfull of facts. It's also a deeply felt work: Sakakeeny is not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve, and he freely expresses his love for the music, the musicians, and the city of New Orleans itself. And through the lens of the brass band, he invites the reader to view and ponder the many issues that inspire, impact, and oftentimes impede American artists. Best of all, he offers a verbal depiction of a great musical tradition that has stood the test of time, as well as a city that continues to shine despite undergoing unthinkable, ongoing adversity.
